Virginia M. Hanson, assistant teaching professor in the Department of Agricultural Education and Studies, shared the following comment sent by a CALS student regarding Iowa State's decision to move all courses online for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester:
"I feel extremely comfortable with how this and other courses are moving because you and all my professors have been awesome during these uncertain times! Thank you for making this as stress free as possible and easy for students!"
Hanson said, "The CALS community is already pretty resilient - our students have mitigated crises in their lives if they are from farm backgrounds. I'm happy to read in quite a few emails from AGEDS students that they are finding their professors and advisers on the ball, too."
